    I have been looking for a typing program that I can use for my students next year. I have on my personal computer Mavis Beacon. It's nice, but I want something a little more ummm..."Teacher friendly" I guess. Something where i can go look at their progress and set lessons if i need to. And mainly one where they cannot mess with all the settings...they are very good at that. :mad:

    How old are the students? I use Ultrakey with gr 3-8. The network version lets you set options for one student, a whole class, or all classes at one time. You can print reports showing progress and test results. I like it.

    Our Occupational Therapist at our school purchased "Type to Learn" by Sunburst Learning for the whole school. I know there are some teacher controls but we aren't getting it until August so I can't give more details. You can download a trial.

    We use Type to Learn. I think it was available in Scholastic's Click catalog recently.

    We also use TTL- the students respond well to the program.
